Undergraduate Student Success Center

FAMU prioritizes the safety of our stakeholders and continues to maintain flexibility in its operations. We remain open for business. What has changed is the mode of delivery for our essential academic and operational services. We will continue to work remotely until further notice.


The Office of Access and Opportunity is a four-year undergraduate retention-based office tasked with providing academic and social integration initiatives to students admitted to FAMU through the Access Summer Bridge Program (ASB). The ASB program Program is designed  for underrepresented students who do not meet regular admission criteria, but who demonstrate potential to succeed in college with guided, intentional, academic, and personal assistance.

Students admitted through the Office of Access & Opportunity will be provided academic and social initiatives throughout their undergraduate years at FAMU. Academic benchmarks have been created to retain students and ensure academic success each semester.

Our goal is to support those selected to participate with the Office of Access & Opportunity through academic support, mentorship and life skills development. Our aim is to ensure that the program participants successfully navigate the transition into college graduate and move on to successful careers.

The office is located on the second floor of the Dyson Building in Suite 201:
